Project: Applications of differential geometry to theoretical mechanics.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
abstract
Study of the inverse problem of Langrangian mechanics : application of new techniques emerging from the theory of derivations of forms along the tangent bundle projection. Investigation of symmetry and reduction properties of implicit Hamiltonian andLagrangian systems. Intensification of existing forms of collaboration in these fields is meant to sustain a future application for European funding in a wider area of fundamental research.
